I was thinking about buying a journal set. I'm an undergrad student looking for journals that I can use for research papers.

 

Any suggestions???

I cannot recommend the Theological Journal Library enough.  I have the entire 13 volume set and buy them annually as they are released.  You will find an excellent source of conservative scholarship for all of your study or research needs.

They are worth every penny and more.

The best bang for your buck in terms of page count would be the Theological Journal Library. The journals in that collection are all conservative. The Journal of Biblical Literature (shipping next month, available now for the pre-pub price of $149.95) is more mainstream or liberal.

You might want to consider Religious and Theological Abstracts (which is in pre-pub and might not ship before you finish your undergrad studies). For only $49 you could get access to search the abstracts of all the articles in several hundred journals. It won't give you the full content of the articles, but if you find something relevant that way you can get it from your university library via inter-library loan.

Good move, James. Like you, I started by tasting the most recent TJL, and then bought the others as I could. JETS, Tyndale, and R&E are invaluable.

If your research involves in-depth Biblical studies and not just from a conservative perspective, you might want to consider highly respected Journal of Biblical Literature. I mention it because it's currently available as pre-pub special, due for release next month.
